You will need:
Prepare and roast the tofu: Bring water (about 4 cups, 4 to 8 cups, 8 to 10 cup) to a boil in a large pot for the ramen.
Set aside the tofu marinade. Cut the tofu in 2 cm cubes. In a large pan, add the oil (1/2 tbs, 1 tbs, 1 1/2 tsp), and tofu cubes. Cook on medium heat and turn regularly to roast each cube – about 6-8 minutes. Place the tofu in a bowl with the marinade and set aside. Rinse the pan to re-use for the vegetables.
Prepare and cook the vegetables: Wash and clean all produce. Cut the mushrooms in about 1 cm slices and the carrots in about 1/2 cm slices. In the same pan you cooked the tofu, heat the oil (1/2 tsp, 1 tsp, 1 1/2 tsp) on medium heat. Add the mushrooms and carrots. Stirring regularly, cook on medium heat for about 7-10 minutes, until the carrots are tender. Add the tofu to the vegetables. Combine and set aside.
Cook the ramen: While the vegetables are cooking and the water is boiling, add the ramen and cook for about 3 1/2 to 4 minutes. Strain the noodles in a colander and place them back in the pot.
Gluten free: Add the ramen to boiling water. When noodles begin to unfold (about 1 minute), separate gently with a fork and reduce heat to low boil. Continue to cook for 3 minutes or until the noodles are just soft. Strain through a colander and rinse with cold water.
Combine the sauce with the ramen: Add the ginger soy sauce to the ramen. Combine and set aside.
Assemble: Separate the mint leaves. In serving dishes, place the ramen, vegetables and tofu. Garnish with mint leaves and panko.

Mushrooms can produce their own vitamin D from the sun (just like us!) Leaving 3oz of sliced mushrooms in direct sun for 15 minutes gives you 200-800iu of vitamin D!
